Over the past several years, Los Alamos National Laboratory has invested in providing state-of-the-art tools to help scientists understand and explore their data. 
 
In this photo, researchers are investigating the details of an astronomical simulation in the CAVE (cave automatic virtual environment) -- a cube-shaped room with high-resolution projections on all six surfaces. Using 3D glasses, these researchers can see objects floating in air, and even walk around the objects, allowing them to observe simulations from all angles. | Photo by LeRoy Sanchez, LANL.
